The City of Countryside has partnered with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) to provide free rain barrels to residents within MWRD’s service area in Cook County. Rain barrels are a form of green infrastructure designed to capture and reuse rain water and can lead to potential reduction in water bills. The goal of the program is to lessen the amount of water entering the storm water system, reducing basement backups, overland flooding, infiltration and inflow. To qualify for free rain barrels, residents must live in Cook County in a municipality that has signed an Intergovernmental Agreement with the MWRD. This program allows for 4 barrels per address.

The City will accept requests until December 27, 2016.View More
